    i have just been looking through the sticky 'so you are thinking of starting atkins', and it mentions the veg you are allowed is per mug full, what exactly is a mug full...is there a certain weight to it? :confused:

    Induction

    The first stage, 'induction', lasts for two weeks to ensure that you are properly in ketosis and that your body has 'switched gear' to its alternative source of energy. This is the most carbohydrate-restricted stage (no more than 15 - 20 g carbohydrate per day). This level allows you a daily amount of around 120 g of salad vegetables and 130g of cooked low carb vegetables such as broccoli, cauliflower, courgettes, green beans etc, plus unsweetened soya milk in weak tea/coffee if you wish.

    The rest of your menu is made up of meat, fish, shellfish or poultry and fats (which are completely unrestricted as they are carbohydrate free) and eggs and hard cheeses (which do contain a small amount of carbohydrate, so you need to use these in moderation for this initial stage).

    You eat until you're satisfied, and should never be hungry. It is also important to drink a large amount of water, as explained earlier. There is no rule on when to eat, except that you should avoid skipping meals, breakfast in particular.


    Induction phase - allowed foods

    High protein, carbohydrate free foods
    All meats, fish, seafood such as prawns, poultry
    Eat as much as you like
    Fats & oils
    All 100% fats & oils

    High protein/fat foods containing small amounts of carbohydrate
    Eggs
    Hard cheeses

    Soya milk (unsweetened, 0.6g carb per 100ml or less)
    Eat as much as your daily carbohydrate allowance permits
    Salads containing small amounts of carbohydrate
    Alfalfa sprouts
    Celery
    Cucumber
    Dill, basil, rosemary, thyme, oregano etc
    Fennel
    Lettuce, romaine, escarole, endive, radicchio etc
    Olives
    Radishes
    Red/green peppers (bell peppers)
    Eat as much as your daily carbohydrate allowance permits
    Vegetables containing small amounts of carbohydrate
    Artichoke hearts
    Asparagus
    Aubergine (eggplant)
    Avocado

    Herbs and spices - these vary in carbohydrate content but in general the quantities in which they are used are too small to worry too much about counting
    Eat as much as your daily carbohydrate allowance permits

    hi jim
    are we talking about the big coffee mugs (not cups), is that what you use?, and i know this may sound silly but do you cut your veg first before you fill your cup with them i.e. because if you filled a mug with uncut mushrooms you are getting less than you would in weight than if they were sliced and then added to the cup/mug....sorry to be a pain asking questions...it just confuses me some....thanks :)

    Yes Maz, the coffee mugs, and I chop and shred the veggies first. Well I did back on induction, I don't measure anything now.
